Fisheries Liaison Group – draft minutes of meeting 29 July 2020 available

The Fisheries Liaison Group, a group of commercial and recreational fishers, divers and Napier Port representatives, met on Wednesday 29 July 2020.

The draft minutes from the meeting can be found here.

Led by Independent Chair Eileen von Dadelszen, the group was established following the approval of Napier Port’s resource consents to build a new wharf and carry out further dredging and disposal so more and larger ships can berth at Napier Port as the region grows.

The group is working with Napier Port to ensure it has strong plans and effective monitoring in place to protect the water quality and ensure the fishing stock is not impacted as a result of disposal and dredging during the 6 Wharf Project.
